If you've been looking for an editorial that was intended to take General MacArthur down a peg or two, you've found it. It was penned by Shelley Mydans (1915 - 2002), a journalist who was primarily known at the time for her LIFE MAGAZINE news dispatches; she found the General to be both admirable and repulsive at the same time and was thoroughly baffled as to why he was so loved on so many different continents.

"The flavor of the last century is still about hem in his courtly manner, the slow pace of his speech, his fondness for soliloquy, and his frequent unsophisticated biblical allusions... he is essentially an unsophisticated person."

Written two years before General MacArthur's stunning 1950 victory in the Korean War (the Battle of Inchon), this article makes apparent a deep-seated fear held within the senior leadership of the Democratic party that MacArthur was planning to challenge Truman in the 1948 presidential election.
